Renate Heintze FAZIT

Renate Heintze (1936–1991) supervised the jewelry class at Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle from 1974 right until her death. She belongs to the generation of those jewelry artists who burst the confines of traditional artisanal work in the sixties of the 20th century and became the trailblazers of international studio jewelry. The book titled “Renate Heintze. Fazit“ has now been published in the publishing house Janos Stekovics as a monograph about her life’s work.

Renate Heintze deserves recognition and appreciation in the line of those goldsmiths, famous and influential today, who, both with their works and as teachers, have paved the way to our contemporary jewelry art. Because of her early death, this is only little known nowadays. The publication of the book “Renate Heintze. Fazit“ shall remedy this omission.

This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition “Renate Heintze. The Classic of Modernity“ within the framework of the special exhibition “Schmuck 2017 and of the special exhibition “Renate Heintze, Dorothea Prühl and the Jewelry Students of the Burg Giebichenstein“ in gallery MARZEE within the scope of FRAME at the Internationale Handwerksmesse München 2017 as well as Katja Schneider’s lecture “Renate Heintze. Her Way to Studio Jewelry“ in the Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, on March 12, 2017.
